New results for STINT Internationalisation Index are presented. How has the pandemic influenced the internationalisation at the Swedish higher education institutions? At the hybrid seminar, Dr. Sonia Feigenbaum, will deliver a keynote about the development of comprehensive internationalisation at The University of Texas at Austin.
Since 2012, STINT Internationalisation Index shows how international Swedish higher education institutions are, based on a number of factors such as research, the international mobility of students and staff, and teaching offered in languages other than Swedish. The Index includes the 28 higher education institutions with substantial research volumes and is updated annually.

Dr. Sonia Feigenbaum began her tenure as the inaugural senior vice provost for global engagement and chief international officer in February 2019. During her first year, she led efforts with stakeholders across campus and beyond to create the Texas Global brand, a comprehensive vision for international engagement at UT and she restructured global engagement operations to maximize growth, streamline processes, and create a wholistic approach to internationalization. She also led the vision for the publication of the first university global engagement report and in 2021, UT Austin received the prestigious 2021 Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization. To date, she has raised funds in excess of $14M to implement on- and off-campus internationalization programs, she negotiated new contracts with international partners, launched major initiatives to bolster transnational research, international internships and virtual exchanges, and she created new or deepened existing strategic partnerships with institutions abroad.
